Collection Overview

Scope and Content
These manuscripts of various authors deal predominantly with Appalachian topics or, in the case of fiction, with Appalachian themes or settings.
Manuscripts have been collected over a period of years by Berea College Hutchins Library or Special Collections staff. Materials assigned to this accession relate specifically to individual published or unpublished works of the authors represented.
In cases where a substantial volume of more diverse papers are present, separate accessions are made (such as John Fetterman Papers, Jesse Stuart Correspondence, or James Watt Raine Ballard Collection.) In certain cases non-Appalachian manuscripts may be included if other works of an author are relevant to Appalachia.
